Water testing?

Havenít tested in a while so forgot what Iím doing!
Tank set up- 11months
X8 neon tetras- 11months
X6 cardinal tetras- 1 day
X 2 dwarf gourami- 1 day
Water test
Ammonia- 0.25/0.50ppm
Nitrite- 0ppm
Nitrate- 5.0ppm

My question is, are these levels ok, I lost my master test booklet so the pet store photocopied the back for me?

Hello mis...

I can tell you that even a trace of ammonia in the water is lethal to fish. Ideally, you want no traces of ammonia or nitrite and nitrates in the 20 ppm range. You need to change out at least a third of the water and replace it.
